What you don't see behind the glitter & glitz of contemporary award shows






What you don't see behind the glitter & glitz of contemporary award shows
A bold Behind-the-Scenes Tell-All About How Talented Artists
and Athletes Are Mentally and Physically Killed
by Badly Behaving Fans, Families, Teachers and Coaches
who Deify, Vilify and Crucify Our Stars.
Healthier Ways to Mentor the Talented
and Bring Healing to Our Culture



Lisa Loving Dalton, a forty-year veteran of the entertainment industry, dares to pull back the curtain of tinsel town to examine some very gritty facts.


What stands out in her new book Murder Of Talent: How Pop Culture Is Killing "IT" is the no-holds-barred assay she makes on the fans, the families, mentors and the talented ones revealing the dangers that exist. An easy and dynamic read, with something for everyone, this messy memoir, part uncensored social diatribe, part gentle master class on the nature of peak performance and how to achieve it in a way that is good for the fans and for our heroes.


Dalton puts us all on trial for the death and destruction of our stars, our wannanbes, our selves and our culture. She calls for the arrest of some and even judges herself guilty of self-violence for allowing a famous coach to destroy her film-acting career. Then, with empathy and wisdom, Lisa gently steps us along a path to redemption with tips for each of us on how to stop the metaphoric and actual bloodshed, leading us to happier, healthier lives.

Endorsed by a Clinical Psychologist and a Tony Award-winning Producer, with a foreword by noted scholar/author Dr. Sharon Carnicke, Dalton courageously shares painful true stories of how she and fellow artists were indoctrinated in PTSD-inducing techniques. The knife is further twisted when we understand this destruction is still propagated by academia and manipulative super coaches, some making over a million dollars a year as they drain the pockets of penniless actors and a few superstars to boot.

No wonder stars are killing themselves with sex, drugs and other bad behavior.

Perhaps the most publicly provocative aspect of this book is how children are traumatized into denying their talent by parents, teachers, and peers. Parents fear economic and social instability, and even attach homophobia to talent, refusing to support their children in non-math/science careers, forcing them away from what they love and into other fields where they suffer, fail and take a toll on society. Dalton reveals what it takes to survive humiliation in the classroom, harassment and jealousy from friends, self-doubt and parental disapproval.

The First Time Writer


 
Some people seem unable to get a first story started no matter how many exciting plots they have rattling around in the attic. The advice given in some articles is meant to motivate would-be authors to begin. That same advice is sought by those already established in their careers and wishing to improve their talents.
You will...
·         have a story when you begin and then finish writing it.
·         develop your voice after you begin to write.
·         thoroughly understand character development when you realize how much fun it is to create story people.
·         learn all aspects of building a story. It happens naturally as you recognize your need to know more about composition.
·         learn to edit your work to perfection and will realize that the editing process begins from the moment you start to formulate sentences, paragraphs and then chapters.
·         discover ways to polish your prose and make it uniquely yours.
·         learn how to promote yourself even if thinking yourself a wallflower.
 
However, none of this can happen unless you reach the point of starting that first story. I would love to hear success stories from anyone who was helped by the advice in this book. I would wish everyone luck, but it's not a matter of luck. It's a matter of letting go of all the reasons for not writing and then getting started. It's as simple as that.

They tore at the very soul of their live prey





They tore at the very soul of their live prey
A cry of redemption revealing a struggle for the soul.
Eleventh Street will take you back to a time when a worship service had no television monitors in the lobby or microphones on stage. Sermons were not memorized and preachers did not deliver their message in exactly twenty-two minutes, timing their message to accommodate production guidelines.    

Surviving hand-to-hand combat in World War II did not equip Lucas for the war of worship to follow at his new-found church. In the Pacific Islands, Lucas knew where the enemy hid. In church, he mistook murmuring between pews as the prayer of a penitent saint.

Eleventh Street is a story of redemption revealing a struggle for the soul. Lucas is tempted to backslide and to fight in his own strength, but is ever mindful of the lessons learned from Pastor and Shorty. Lucas seeks a lasting peace, but the fatigue of spiritual battle takes its toll.
